EDITED TO SAY: I work in a wine shop, which is why I have all that.
There's two top shelf ones - ummmmmmmm - Carnival of Love and Enchanted Path - I just don't want to fork out the money, even though I would just be paying cost.
What did you pay for yours? We sell it for $19.99 - a friend was out of town and she paid $29.99 for The Boxer
I have The Scooter and Goosebumps - There's so many they are hard to keep up with.
I see you are in Naples, Florida - too far away to have a Dooker Buffet on the front porch!
I got onto Mollydooker a couple years ago from an article I read. Here's where you get it (if not at your retail shop)
Mollydooker Winery - Find and Buy Molly Dooker Wines Direct
This is distributor direct and today, 10-10-07 is the LAST DAY to get shipping for only 1 cent a bottle. For the money, The Boxer is the best deal, but they're all just super.
I met the vintners, Sarah and Sparky Marquis, at a wine tasting in Naples this past July. They are a couple of real characters and put on a heck of a show. Good thing I wasn't driving because I drank every one of their wines including about a half bottle of Velvet Glove. I'm betting Parker gives that one 100 points. Wine advocate has completed the tastings but the scores have not yet been released. The wines were not decanted, rather, the Mollydooker Shake
was used. Now I use that technique on all my newer wines. It works.
I still have over a case of 05 Boxer, and my 06's included 3 cs Boxer, 6 btl Blue Eyed Boy, 6 Carnival Of Love, 1 each of the rest except for 2 Velvet Gloves. I'm not going to drink the Glove because they're sold out and I'm going to watch the auction sites next year to see if there might be a little moola to be made.
One final note, Goosebumps! I will never drink a $50 champaign again. Goosebumps is, in a word, thrilling - my new bubbly of choice.
edit - Um, forgot to say that the penny a bottle shipping is for cases of 12 only, not individual bottles.
